About a week and a half.
Sometimes our cats' kittens open there eyes earlier than that, but we've had some that have gone up to 2 weeks before their eyes opened. =]

The kittens start to open their tiny eyes when they are ten days old. The kittens are born with their eyes closed. By the end of the first week kitten should double in body weight. Read more from pawsonline.info/lookingafterkittens.htm.

Kittens open their eyes about seven to ten days after birth. At first, the retina is poorly developed and vision is poor. Kittens are not able to see as well as adult cats until about ten weeks after birth.

My kittens opened their eyes fully by the second week. They are now 5 weeks old and still haven't doubled in size. That usually is only w dogs.
